"Millions have wondered about the psychological consequences of 9/11. No doubt hundreds have thought about collecting diverse interpretations. But only Matthew J. Morgan has actually secured testimony from psychologically-informed observers. Thoughtful persons today - as well as thoughtful persons in the future - are in his debt." - Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
"In contrast to the conformist and even self-serving reaction of so many politicians, regular citizens, and academics to the tragedy of 9/11, this volume presents a variety of thought-provoking perspectives. I also welcome the question mark in the title, which opens a discussion rather than foreclosing it. Experts in psychology, education, and similar disciplines contend with weighty existential, moral, and pragmatic issues, helping the reader reflect on what humans do or do not learn after devastating losses." - Etzel Cardena, Thorsen Professor in Psychology, Lund University
"This collection of well-written, timely, interwoven essays will prove of great value to psychologists and educators at all levels - from the novice student to the experienced expert." - Fathali M. Moghaddam, Professor of Psychology,Georgetown University, and author of How Globalization Spurs Terrorism
